Electronics

As one of the most common items in any pawn shop, pawning or selling a few unused electronics is a great way to make some extra cash. You might have some unused items like smartphones, televisions, tablets, or computers lying around. Just make sure it is not more than 5 years old as pawn buys won't accept these older items.

Kitchenware
